Windows 2000 Server VPN Setup
Posted on 2004-08-08
I just finished setting up a VPN in Windows 2000 server, and as soon as I did the server was unable to contact any other hosts on the internet or the LAN.
On the LAN there is the Windows 2000 server and 5 Windows XP Home computers, all connected behind a 2wire Officeportal DSL modem/router. The server and the 5 computers are all connected to a switch, which the router is also connected to. I understand the the modem/router needs to be set up so that external users can connect to the VPN and I'm going to do that, however at the moment the priority is getting the server to access the internet and the LAN. I suspect there is a problem with DNS on the server - all the other computers on the internet are able to access everything but the server, including the internet - but they don't go through the server for DNS.
How can I solve this problem? It's urgent, any help would be greatly appreciated!
